139 - 50 Cent's Career May Be Stalled

This week your friends Count Vardulon and DM take in three direct-to-video movies of varying quality.  As it turns out, one of the movies they chose isn't technically a movie, but a TV series so bad it was repackaged and sold as a film.  Unsurprisingly, Count Vardulon kind of enjoyed it. Tune in hear about how Frank Miller is a racist jerk, learn how many films DM hasn't seen, and listen to so viewer mail.

    Point about Simon Baker- although he was also in The Ring 2. Which maybe I shouldn't admit to having seen. Not Forgotten, which I also consider genre.

    And then there's The Lodger and The Killer Inside Me, which is kind of-sort of- not really genre.

    So, Vardulon's point is definitely valid, and he's not even close to Nathan Fillion as far as genre is concerned, but I'd consider him borderline, whose career HAS been primarily focused on TV. I probably just have a very loose definition of "genre actor". I'll admit that.

    And point #2 is equally correct- I just didn't really care enough about Castle to keep the conspiracy point in mind.

    (Whee, spoilers ahead. Sort of.)

    I think what mixed me up is that we had Stan Rizzo from Mad Men as a professional killer who killed a bunch of people, and then Lockwood, who killed a bunch of people, who were hired by this powerful figure. Since he's the one who has HAD all these people connected to Stana's mother killed, he somehow became a serial killer in my mind. Even though that's not really how serial killers work.

    And aside from Nathan Fillion, the main reason why I sometimes watch Castle is really the same reason I watch Criminal Minds- to see what guest stars I can recognize in the episodes. I think my favorite one thus far was when the killer in the Season 2 two-parter was Scar from Fullmetal Alchemist.

    Although there is NO WAY that Dameon Clark could have not gotten caught when he killed that guy at the end of the first episode, but this isn't a Castle podcast. (Although I see to be DESPERATE to turn it into one... for some reason.)

    Oh, and I forgot- Thanks for responding to me specifically on the podcast! Really appreciate it. ^^

  3. Speaking of genre actors, John Terlesky, from Deathstalker II and Chopping Mall directs a LOT of Castle's episodes!

    As for that list, Messiah of EVil is DEFINITELY worth it!
